Natural Growth Factor Injections

Natural Growth Factor Injections is the next step in the evolution of natural skin and hair rejuvenation. Natural Growth Factor Injections is a fibrin matrix comprised of platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and wound healing. Natural Growth Factor Injections, known as PRF, is used to address many of the same issues as PRP Injections, but Natural Growth Factor Injections (PRF) release growth factors for much longer, up to one week, versus PRP injections which release growth factors for a few hours. This means that PRF Injections could have better longer-term benefits. The growth factors are what stimulate the stem cells to improve collagen and elastin in the skin and promote hair growth. The platelets in PRF Injections are thought to be more robust than those in PRP and, therefore, promote faster healing. The prepared Natural Growth Factor (PRF) Injections are immediately ready for injection into the scalp to aid with hair restoration and growth.

Natural growth factor injections work to harness the power of the body’s own cells to rejuvenate and repair the skin. Often referred to as “liquid gold,” this therapy offers a unique approach to skincare and hair restoration, combining advanced science with natural healing processes. At SHADe in Issaquah, natural growth factor injections are provided as a stand-alone treatment, as well as to complement other skin revitalization treatments, such as microneedling.

Natural Growth Factor Injections + Rejuvapen Microneedling

Microneedling is a revolutionary treatment that rejuvenates skin and minimizes the signs of aging. Micrim improves the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates aging skin. When we add Natural Growth Factor Injections (PRF) to your microneedling treatment, we are combining two therapies in one to supercharge your treatment. The small punctures created by microneedling with Rejuvapen, are perfect for injecting PRF. Together, these two therapies reverse the aging of your skin and produce a healthy glow.

Microneedling and Natural Growth Factor Injections are both extremely effective at rejuvenating your skin. The Natural Growth Factor Injections stimulate the skin’s ability to repair and rejuvenate itself, while the microneedling helps stimulate collagen production, which gives you a younger appearance.

What to Expect During Your Treatment


The procedure begins with a standard blood draw, similar to what you’d expect for routine blood work. We then process the blood to isolate the growth factor-rich platelets and white cells, which can then be injected.

Depending on the individual’s treatment plan, natural growth factor injections may accompany microneedling or laser procedures, ensuring deeper penetration and maximum absorption. The entire process is designed to be minimally invasive, with patient comfort as a priority.
